TECHNICAL NOTE 



Basic Data Relating to the National Institutes of Health 
has been published annually since 1961. Single copies of 
the current issue are available at NIH information offices. 

The booklet is planned, edited, and published by the 
Special Projects Branch, DLA-OPPE. Data are derived 
from NIH records and studies unless otherwise noted. The 
Division of Resources Analysis, OPPE, develops the data 
on national support for health R&D from annual surveys 
and other sources. The Statistics and Analysis Branch, 
DRG, compiles the data on NIH awards. The Division of 
Financial Management, OA, is the source of information 
on NIH budget and staff. (See "Abbreviations," page 51.) 

Programs that have been transferred out of NIH — 
NIMH, DRMP, DBS, and BHME - are excluded from all 
data except national and Federal time series. DRR, 
though located in BHME from 4/68 to 9/70, is always in- 
cluded with the Institutes and Research Divisions. The 
transition quarter (TQ) is excluded throughout. The 
NIMH portion of GRS grants, which are administered by 
DRR, is included in all award data through 1974. (See 
"Chronology," page 47, for major organizational changes.) 

"Health R&D" denotes medical and health-related 
projects, resources, and general support, but no training or 
construction. In health R&D series, the NIH component 



(pages 1-6) contains certain items not classified as 
research in other tables on obligations, such as foreign 
currency programs and portions of cancer control, NLM, 
and direct operations. 

All award data exclude scientific evaluation grants. See 
Table 25 for new classification of research grants. These 
now include research career program awards. Supple- 
mental awards, unless noted, are combined with their 
parent awards or with other supplements when made from 
the same fiscal year funds. 

Differences between "obligations" and "awards" are 
due to differences in treatment of certain items (cancer 
control, scientific evaluation grants, GRS programs, etc.) 
in the accounting methods used by the various data 
sources. The largest difference reflects the handling of 
cancer control, which is identified in obligation tables 
but integrated with grants and contracts in award 
presentations. 

Details may not add exactly to totals because of 
rounding.

TECHNICAL NOTE 



Basic Data Relating to the National Institutes of Health 
has been published annually since 1961. Single copies of 
the current issue are available at NIH information offices. 

The booklet is prepared under the direction of the 
Special Projects Officer, OPPE. Data are derived from NIH 
records and studies unless otherwise noted. The Division of 
Resources Analysis, OPPE, develops the data on national 
support for health R&D from annual surveys and other 
sources. The Statistics and Analysis Branch, DRG, compiles 
the data on NIH awards. The Division of Financial Manage- 
ment, OA, is the source of information on NIH budget and 
staff. (See "Abbreviations, " page 60.) 

Programs that have been transferred out of NIH— NIMH, 
DRMP, DBS, and BHME-are excluded from all data ex- 
cept national and Federal time series. DRR, though located 
in BHME from 4/68 to 9/70, is always included with the 
Institutes and Research Divisions. The transition quarter 
(see "TQ," page 61) is excluded throughout. The NIMH 
portion of GRS grants, which are administered by DRR, 
is included in all award data through 1974. (See "Chron- 
ology," page 55, for major organizational changes.) 

"Health R&D" denotes medical and health-related pro- 
jects, resources, and general support, but no training or 



construction. In health R&D series (pages 1-5), the NIH 
component contains certain items not classified as research 
in other tables on obligations, such as cancer control and 
portions of NLM and direct operations. 

All award data exclude scientific evaluation grants and 
interagency agreements. Supplemental awards, unless noted, 
are only counted when the parent award is from a prior 
year's funds, and such supplements if multiple are counted 
as one. See Table 29 for classification of research grants. 

Differences between "obligations" and "awards" are due 
to differences in treatment of certain items (cancer control, 
scientific evaluation grants, GRS programs, etc.) in the ac- 
counting methods used by the various data sources. The 
largest difference reflects the handling of cancer control, 
which is identified in obligation tables but partially inte- 
grated in award presentations. 

Details may not add exactly to totals because of round- 
ing. Historical series are often revised.

OMAR CONSENSUS DEVELOPMENT CONFERENCES, 1979 

The Office for Medical Applications of Research (OMAR) in the Office of the Director, NIH, is the focal point for a pro- 
gram aimed at improving the translation of biomedical research results into knowledge that can be effectively applied in 
the practice of medicine and public health. In carrying this out, OMAR facilitates and coordinates technical consensus de- 
velopment activities at NIH. Eleven consensus conferences were held in 1979 at a cost of $368,507, and approximately 15 
are anticipated for 1980 at an estimated cost of $750,000. Those held in 1979 and their sponsors were as follows:
